Kids Gardening Programs Teach Kids About Fruits And Vegetables

Posted on Apr 09, 2012 by Maggie LaBarbera

This is National Garden Month which is perfect to get kids involved in a little gardening activity.  

We are always talking about ways to get the kids involved with fresh fruits and vegetables and having them grow their own fruits and vegetables is a great way to get them interested.

You may be surprised to know that studies have shown that garden based programs help children*:

  • Learn about Nutrition
  • Learn about the Environmental Awareness
  • Enjoy Learning
  • Develop Life Skills
  • Promote Health and Wellness
  • Promote a Sense of Community


Recommended Safety Tips When Gardening With Children


How To Pick Fresh Fruits and Vegetables in Season

Have the kids start by creating their Garden Log Journal so they can write down the activities they did and what they see as the plants begin to grow.

This is great for science, writing and math skills!

To get started, you can print:


Kids Colorful Gardening Journal Cover Page


Kids Garden Journal Bookmark Coloring Sheet


Kids Gardening Journal Entry Page - Colorful Page


Chef Solus Fruts and Vegetable Plants Chart

Kids can also learn about gardening with our cute coloring pages that teach about garden tools and stages of plant growth and our puzzle and vocabulary pages.  All with a healthy theme promoting the joy of gardening.
